  Jehonadab 
  Jehovah  is  liberal;  or  whom  Jehovah  impels.  (1.)  A  son  of 
  Shimeah,  and  nephew  of  David.  It  was  he  who  gave  the  fatal 
  wicked  advice  to  Amnon,  the  heir  to  the  throne  (2  Sam.  13:3-6). 
  He  was  very  "subtil,"  but  unprincipled. 
 
  (2.)  A  son  of  Rechab,  the  founder  of  a  tribe  who  bound 
  themselves  by  a  vow  to  abstain  from  wine  (Jer.  35:6-19).  There 
  were  different  settlements  of  Rechabites  (Judg.  1:16;  4:11;  1 
  Chr.  2:55).  (See  {RECHABITE}.)  His  interview  and 
  alliance  with  Jehu  are  mentioned  in  2  Kings  10:15-23.  He  went 
  with  Jehu  in  his  chariot  to  Samaria.
